Hurst, Fannie - still image [media]

Hurst, Fannie - still image [media]

Growing up in a family with conflicting attitudes towards Judaism, Fannie Hurst initially declared that her heart "belongs to the people." It took the rise of Hitler to force her to acknowledge antisemitism, and the creation of Israel to forge her sense of Jewishness. This photo was taken on March 16, 1938.

Photographer: Carl Van Vechten; Institution: U.S. Library of Congress
